Founder - Sav ToporekReworked by Sav, formally known as Shorts by Sav, was founded by Sav Toporek originally in 2015, and has since been brought back to life. We upcycle secondhand clothes and textiles into new clothing and home goods - with sustainability first of priority. 

99% of our materials are secondhand - everything we produce, outside of the decals on our tees are secondhand. Textile waste is one of the leading polluters across the globe, and it is a part of our mission to create new fashion from materials that already exist.

Shorts by Sav - Original

Shorts by Sav originally began in 2015 while Sav was in high school in Fort Wayne, IN. It started as a way for her to play around with thrifting and design, and create her own clothes for herself. Quickly her shorts became popular around her school and around the town, and she launched an Instagram page (the same page used today) to expand her sales. 

Shorts by Sav 2.2

The relaunch of Shorts by Sav came to fruition in February 2022, with the goal of taking the original Shorts by Sav elements, but launching it into a cohesive, organized brand. Shorts by Sav 2.2 was officially relaunched on 2/22/22.

Reworked by Sav

Shorts by Sav officially rebranded into Reworked by Sav on 1/1/24, aiming to reflect what the brand has grown into and its product offerings more cohesively. Now we not only offered upcycled denim, but all kinds of upcycled clothing.
